Selected Product Life Cycle Analysis of Bluetooth Low Energy Market:
Product Life Cycle Analysis
• The BLE modules and chipsets have different product life cycles owing to their respective methods of fabrication and utilization inside a product or a device. The figure below depicts the product life cycle analysis for a Bluetooth smart Low Energy module. The Bluetooth Low Energy module is initially designed and developed based on the Bluetooth SIG specifications in R&D facility. The protocol stack embedded inside the module differs according to several manufacturers. Once the module is analyzed for its commercial viability, the design specifications are transferred to manufacturing and testing facilities where Bluetooth Low Energy chipsets are either obtained from other manufacturers, or fabricated by module manufacturers on their own. This is followed by the addition of electronic circuits to the chipsets to create a Bluetooth Low Energy module.
• After passing through the manufacturing phase, the modules are simultaneously tested for several performance parameters. This is succeeded by the certification stage where modules undergo monitoring processes for obtaining various certifications and then head towards distributors for supplying the final product to the end-users in order to enable Bluetooth Low Energy-based products development. During the use of a Bluetooth Low Energy-based product, if any problem is encountered in the chipset, the architecture of the module facilitates the replacement of chipsets without seeking any changes in its pin layout, size and software interface. Towards the end of a Bluetooth Low Energy-based product life cycle, the product is inspected for valuable materials from several electronic components, which after a recycling process, is finally disposed.
• Similar to the BLE module product life cycle, Bluetooth Low Energy chipset sustains designing and development phases in the R&D facility of a manufacturer. Once the specifications for fabricating a chipset are finalized, the Bluetooth Low Energy chipsets are synthesized along with protocol stacks and tested simultaneously for performance parameters. Following this, Bluetooth Low Energy chipsets are assigned to distributors for supplying them to end-users. The Bluetooth Low Energy chipset consists of primarily two end-users: Bluetooth Low Energy module manufacturers and Bluetooth Low Energy-based product developers.
• The BLE module manufacturers assemble electronic components beside the chipset while Bluetooth Low Energy-based product developers integrate these chips directly into their products. The products from both the types of end-users require certifications, depending upon the applications. Once the certifications are acquired, the products are dispatched to the final end product users. Once these products attain their complete life cycle, the Bluetooth Low Energy chipsets embedded inside them are further evaluated for valuable materials recovery, post which they are disposed.
Market Life Analysis
• The market lifecycle analysis for BLE products can be notably carried for two types of products: Bluetooth Smart ready devices, a category of products having only Bluetooth Low energy protocol implemented inside them, while Bluetooth Smart Ready products are introduced with both Bluetooth Classic and Bluetooth Low Energy protocols. The ubiquitous presence of Bluetooth Classic protocol in hub or master devices including smart phones, tablets, laptops and many others has facilitated the manufacturers of these Bluetooth Low Energy devices to upgrade them to Bluetooth Smart Ready protocol due to their compatibility with both Bluetooth Classic and Bluetooth Smart devices. As a result the market for Bluetooth Smart Ready products has penetrated immensely in the global market as compared to Bluetooth Smart products.
• Bluetooth Smart products known for their long lifecycles due to the incorporation of low power consuming Bluetooth Low Energy chipsets or modules, holds immense potential that is consistently being explored with the development of new applications with the additional support of crowd funding for raising the required capital. Apart from this, Internet of Everything (IoT), a concept to enable interactions with machines, is a huge market that is already in its commercialization phase with numerous development ideas that are being analyzed. As interaction in IoT environment depends on wireless sensors that transmit several data parameters to the master devices, Bluetooth Smart will experience robust growth. Bluetooth Low Energy owing to its distinct attributes, which is not present in other wireless technologies, will experience high sustenance rate in the coming decades. Other wireless technologies are also working on developing new wireless protocols while simultaneously incorporating the distinct features of Bluetooth Low Energy. If any such wireless technology is developed in the near future, Bluetooth Low Energy market will be far away from maturity and replacement, as adoption rate for other advanced wireless technologies will be gradual.
